Your spouse drives you nuts. You see them for a good part of your day and you’re sick of them. You love your spouse. They make a great partner, but you just can’t stand living with them.
You may think you’re weird, but actually, living apart together is a growing trend. Even celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband do it. So if you’re getting sick of having to spend all your free time with your spouse, maybe separate residences is the key to a long, happy marriage.
Living apart together is like having a long-term relationship except for the cohabitation. Some people do it for financial reasons. Maybe they have children from a previous relationship and don’t want to uproot them. Maybe the two have careers on opposite sides of the country. This is often true for movie stars, athletes, and other celebrities.
Living apart together is not really so strange. Perhaps your spouse is great marriage material, but when it comes to the day-to-day stuff, such as having dinner and conversation together, maybe things aren’t so great. It’s possible that your spouse may have quirks that you find annoying, to the point that you refuse to live with them.
Still not convinced that living apart together is the right choice for you? Here are some other benefits to consider:
Being married but not living in the same house as your spouse may seem weird. While some people embrace it, it’s not the right choice for every married couple.
